    The Jersey Shore is the best place to travel in NJ to view birds as it lies on the Atlantic Flyway which a huge number of birds use as a route to migrate. The migratory bird refuge and bird observatory in Cape May and the Wildwoods are the best areas for birdwatching, particularly the marshes closest to North Wildwood where Ospreys nest in elevated platform boxes. In Cape May Bird Observatory. There's also a research and education center in Goshen opened to the public where you watch and learn more about birds.

    If you are traveling in October, N.J.Audubon has a great Fall Birding Weekend you might be interested in attending on the Weekend of Oct. 29-31. Cape May is located on the migratory route of many bird species so, any location there is good. Spring and Fall are the seasons for bird watching in this area so expect tons of crowds.

    There are plenty of locations in the Highlands like the Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area in Hardwick Township and Merrill Creek Reservoir in Washington. Boating is also a good way to spot birds and you can hop on a cruise ship from Cape May (I think it's about $30 for adults and half price for kids).
